WITH FIRE AND SWORD; Arkansas, 1861-1874

Fayetteville, AR: University of Arkansas Press, 2003. First edition. Paperback. 6 x 9, 263 pgs, index, sources, b&w historical photos. When Arkansas seceded from the Union in 1861, it was a thriving state. But the Civil War and Reconstruction left it reeling, impoverished, and so deeply divided that it never regained the level of prosperity it had previously enjoyed. The author describes the major players and events in this dramatic and painful story, but also explores the experiences of ordinary people. Although the historical evidence is complex-and much of the secondary literature is extraordinarily partisan-DeBlack offers a balanced, vivid overview of the state s most tumultuous period. Very Good. Item #30095
